Best home made Italian Beefs ever!!, Member tinam11479

This has been the first recipe I have ever tried off of the internet. I am a single mom and have never had the time to cook an outstanding meal that I can be proud of. This was certainly it!!! So easy to prepare, cooks while I'm at work, and my son loved it! On request, I have made it numerous times. It has such a great taste. I use the mild peppers in the crock pot for my son, but add a few hot ones to my own sandwich to give it that extra kick. And everyone has been right, let it cook. Don't rush this one!!
